Donation Information

The Sailing Association is a club sports team here at UVA, and for this reason we function with a very limited budget. Most of our funding comes through the University’s Student Activities Fund, but the amount given to us is often insufficient for our needs. The costs of maintaining our fleet, traveling to collegiate regattas, and improving our operations are far greater than the amount we receive from the school. It has been through the generosity of alumni and other contributors that we keep new sailors learning, our racers competing, and our team growing.

 

The Sailing Association is a non-profit organization and contributions are tax deductible to the extent allowed by law.  There are several ways you can show your support:

If you are interested in sponsoring a regatta, a boat, or a set of sails, please contact Katarina Catallo at kjc6mf@virginia.edu.  Sponsorships help us fund events and equipment, and can benefit your organization or business as well.  If you have any questions, contact our Treasurer Michael Van Meter at mlv7xx@virginia.edu

Admirals have donated over $1500 to the team.

 

The team would like to give special thanks to KC Fullmer for dedicating his time to voluntarily coach the race team, and also to Chris Stessing and Ellen Hubbard (both 2014 alums) for helping coach last season as well as Gordon Wolcott for helping coach this season . The Club also extends its gratitude to Nate Wapner, Whit Overstreet, Zig Patterson and Farley Will for helping with many of its events and equipment.
